Access to research

Free online access to academic journal articles on Oxfordshire library computers.

Oxfordshire Libraries are proud to be taking part in a groundbreaking initiative to provide free access to published research from academic journals and conference proceedings.

Science, technical and medical research forms the majority but humanities content is also available.  So far, over 8,000 titles from leading publishers including Emerald, OUP, SAGE, Taylor and Francis and Wiley are available for you to read onscreen and print out for personal, non-commercial use.

Check the most current title list as more publishers continue to join Access to Research. If you can’t see the article that you want, please ask us to obtain it for you through the reservation service.

Search for articles from home before you visit the library.

Licensing conditions for this information which is usually only available on subscription in academic libraries, means that we can only provide it on computers in the library and that it is not available through wifi.
